Now Navy Seals can play DOOM on their way to blow stuff up! Seems fair to me!!

Hopefully they'll take Arnold along to carry it for them, another big plus for me!!

There's a number of manufacturers who make ruggedized laptops. Tests done on them typically include submersion in water as well as being sprayed with pressurised water jets.

Some of those laptops have no moving parts - not even a fan or a hard disk!

if you read that review carefully, they say that this laptop was put behind a jet engine. it failed to work when the power cord melted.
